Colin Farrell is among the big stars who will appear in The Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Slated to be released this November, the film is based on the JK Rowling book of the same title. The story is a sort of prequel to the Harry Potter series. The book follows the life of writer Newt Scamander (played by Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne) and is set in a community of wizards who live secretly in New York. The Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them also stars Samantha Morton, Jon Voight and Ron Perlman. JK Rowling wrote the screenplay for the film, which will be direct by David Yates, who directed several of the Harry Potter big-screen adaptations. ♦
